Friday Daily Goodbye
Susan Reed, a cabaret singer and folk artist and Broadway star, has died. She was 84.
Mrs. Reed starred alongside Max Lieberman in a Broadway production of "Billy The Kid," and she also starred in regional productions of "Finian's Rainbow," and "Brigadoon."
In the post-war period, Mrs. Reed performed in 107 concerts in a single year and in 1955 was named the leading female folk singer by Life magazine. Check out this video of her on radio.
Kevin Humphreys , an intimidating prop forward Australian rugby player who later used his muscle as one of the New South Wales Rugby League's most efficient administrators, died yesterday at the age of 80.
He was chairman of the league during the 1970s and 1980s and brought the organization much commercial success after he helped introduce league wide sponsorships. He also organized the State of Origin competition, a best of three series pitting the "maroons," of Queensland, against the "blues" of New South Wales.
It's one of the largest sporting events in Australia, and is in its 30th year running.
